Gallot, Rick.jpg

After much consideration, Sen. Rick Gallot has made the decision to drop out of the race for the 3rd Judicial District judgeship.
“Since the end of the 2014 regular session of the Louisiana legislature, I have had the opportunity to enjoy some much needed quiet time and quality time with my wife and sons,” Gallot said. “After considerable prayer and contemplation, I have decided not to seek the office of Judge for the 3rd Judicial District Court.”

Two Lincoln Parish Detention Center inmates kneel straddling a soft hill of dirt. The sharp tines of a pitchfork come down quickly between the two, loosening the damp earth.
The men shift through the soil, lifting red potatoes out of the hills, wiping them clean and tossing them in a large, white plastic bucket. The three inmates move methodically down the row until it’s clean. The yield: 207 pounds of potatoes — from only one row.

Veitch, Ronald.jpg

Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office officials believe Ruston or Lincoln Parish residents may be the victims of a Minden businessman suspected of using his pest control business to obtain entry into people’s homes and steal prescription medications.

Dubach approves budget, fireworks

in

The Dubach Town Council met Monday to approve budget amendments for 2013-14 and to approve the projected budget for 2014-15.
Town Clerk Pamela Delp, who was hired by the council on May 28, reviewed the budget message for attendants and council members.

Grow a farmers market in the backyard

Hotard, Steven.jpg

Traditionally, vegetable gardens and orchards have been segregated from the rest of the ornamental garden. This was because their purpose was solely for food production. Little concern was given to how attractive these plantings were.
However, many vegetable and fruit varieties are beautiful and can be used in the landscape in aesthetically pleasing ways just like ornamentals. The movement to incorporate food plants throughout the garden or to make plantings of edible plants as attractive as possible is called “edible landscaping.”
